Some Oakland Athletics fans walked into O.co Coliseum for Game 5 prepared to taunt Detroit ace Justin Verlander.. with giant images of Kate Upton's face. There two were rumored to have dated in 2012 but the model since said she was single back in February.

Verlander didn't seem bothered by the presence of the signs. He dominated early and didn't even allow a baserunner until the sixth inning. He ended up going eight innings, striking out 10 and only allowing two hits as Detroit went on to win and advance to the ALCS.
